I know i know.. I hate to do this, I hate the kind who do this.. but im doing it. Im in work and I cant look at loads of images as it'll kill my net quota (no joke) and I need the net for the programs I use and if that happens.. i'll get in a load of bother.

There's a guy in the UK selling meisters in 16x8 and 16x9 both ET20 but they are 4x114.3, so I could run 15mm hub adapters like before bringin them to around ET5/possibly a 0 if i go for 20's.. The 8 is fine for the front, the problem I have is the 16 part.

I used to roll on 14's.. then I got 15's and tbh I thought they were the 'right size' will 16's be too big do you think?.. I need some kind of inspiration or help here lads.
The dish is nice and they look sweet.. I need to quick or they will go though.

PICS!

As long as its low enough 16's look fine.

My 1st set of wheels were 16x8 +15.. so with spacers ur offset will be good too just might need a roll and pull...

You will need to cut your studs if you go lower than 20mm, unless your wheel has those pockets in back of it. If you cut the studs, might as well go with a 10-15mm adapter.
Very good point, I forgot to mention that my Kosei's didn't have the pockets between lug holes. Most wheels have them, therefore you should be okay.

Those are 16x8's et10 with a 10mm spacer on the back. I think I'm going to put 5mm spacers on the front as well!

Thats as best as I can do to show you the fitment. It rides fine no tram lining etc. The 16's on your car should look super cool but a lot of lows will help.
